Skip to comments.Pam Geller: CPAC board member is “worse” than Anwar al-Awlaki
Posted on 03/16/2013 1:34:45 PM PDT by AuntB
Anti-Muslim activist and blogger Pam Geller said Saturday at a CPAC panel of rouge conservative activists that a board member of the group that puts on the annual conservative conference is worse than a terrorist killed by an American drone strike in Yemen.
Geller said the reason she and the other panelists including fellow anti-Muslim activists Frank Gaffney and Robert Spencer were barred from CPAC because of the nefarious influence of board members Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan.
The three anti-Muslim activists have for years accused Gaffney and Khan of being members of the Muslim Brotherhood and secret Islamist agents, but Geller took her rhetoric against Khan, a Republican consultant and former Bush White House official, to new heights today.
Am I saying that Suhail Khan is as bad as Awlaki? Hes worse! she said, referring to Anwar al-Awlaki, the American citizen jihadi who was killed by a U.S. drone strike in 2011.
She added that it was a crime that she and the others panelists were not invited to CPAC, warning that the snub is a threat to the freedom of speech. Free men will have to resort to violence in the absence of the freedom of speech, she added darkly.
Spencer had his own anti-Khan tirade, encouraging activist in the room to go find him and take your picture with him.
Gaffney called Khan a prince of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Gaffney was disinvited from CPAC several years ago and the entire board of the American Conservative Union, which organizes CPAC, passed a unanimous resolution condemning Gaffneys baseless attacks on Khan and Norquist. Geller said she was disinvited this year.
Salon, of course has to call anyone talking about radical Islam as being 'anti Islam', just like CPAC calls anyone not interested in AMNESTY for all is 'anti-immigrant'..
Another article talking about this ‘uninvited panel’ at CPAC, introduced by Rep. Steve King.
[snip]Though, for the most part, the fringiest conservatives were shut out of CPAC this year, one unofficial panel hosted by Breitbart.com did not disappoint, bringing out The Uninvited anti-Islam activists for a panel on national security. Speaking to a packed room, Pamela Geller, Frank Gaffney, and former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, talked of the Muslim Brotherhoods infiltration of America, and, more imminently, of the CPAC conference.
Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, who introduced the panel on Saturday and called the speakers the world experts on global jihad, bemoaned that the FBI has scrubbed out derogatory references to Islam or Muslims because their Muslim advisers told them they had to. He also couldnt pass up the opportunity to talk illegal immigrants, who he called undocumented Democrats.
Robert Spencer, the blogger for Jihad Watch, got a standing ovation for tying both Grover Norquist, who is married to a Muslim woman, and ex-Bush staffer and CPAC board member Suhail Khan, who is Muslim, to the Muslim Brotherhood. What I do know is that theyre completely in bed with the same people Barack Obama is listening to to draft the entire foreign policy of the United States and domestic policy as well.
Spencer added that Norquist is the one who made it so that Pamela Geller and I are on this panel called The Uninvited.She also took a shot at Khan: Suhail Khan is worse than Anwar al Awaki because look whats hes done to this conference.
Frank Gaffney, who was banned from the conference several years ago, said that Khan was recruited to the Muslim Brotherhood when in college. He is a prince of the Muslim Brotherhood.
After the panel, Robert Spencer told Salon that Islamophobia is a concept manufactured by the Muslim Brotherhood in order to intimidate people into being afraid to resist Islamic supremacism.
Apparently Salon writers can’t spell—”rouge” activists, ha, maybe that should be “rogue.”
Re: #3 Rouge(French for red) might not be all that off the mark.
Looks like you have some catching up to do.
Why Has CPAC Banned All Panels About Islam?
That should get you started.
...accused Gaffney and Khan of being members...
“Isn’t Gaffney one of the good guys though?
...accused Gaffney and Khan of being members...”
YES, Gaffney is one of the good guys...this is a mistake by Salon! Wow, I missed that! NOT GOOD. I tried to find other sources for this story, sadly Salon was the only one.
Well, they wrote blushingly...
This line in the article by SALON is WRONG!
“The three anti-Muslim activists have for years accused Gaffney and Khan”
Should read: The three anti-Muslim activists have for years accused NORQUIST and Khan
Frank Gaffney is not going to be happy when he sees that! lol
I have a feeling they meant Nordquist instead of Gaffney.
Yes, see post 10
Maybe it's Code Rouge.
Good on them.
I thought she wasn’t invited?
You beat me to it. If I learned anything in the public school system of the 50’s, it was how to spell correctly.
Terrorism from radical islam is a reality in many parts of the world. Many people are currently suffering as a result of losing their loved ones, or themselves getting maimed as a result of jihad. The liberal response to anyone who speaks up about this is to call these individuals “anti-muslim”. Salon, it appears, is on the side of the violent jihadis.
Yeah, this clown’s writing is pretty awful. Maybe it’s the rouge....
She wasn’t invited. Brietbart put the panel together.
